A Mongolian Throat Song to Usher in a New Era

I don’t know how this made its way to my world yesterday morning, all I know is that I watched it… and quickly became completely entranced in his song.

[shareaholic app=”share_buttons” id=”5111567″]What you’re seeing is Mongolian throat singer and horse-head fiddle player Batzorig Vaanchig. He was born in 1977 in Galuut soum, in the province of Bayankhongor. A teacher of music, and member of the band Khusugton, through their music they convey the stories of their Mongolian nomadic culture, and do an amazing job of that.

Truthfully, in this piece I know not of what he speaks of, only of the way that I felt while I listened… To me, it felt as though he sang of the wars and battles his soul has experienced, the battles of mankind throughout centuries of our human existence… and sang that it was time for man to truly come to know what those wars create. Knowing destruction, in order to know the One.

But that is just one interpretation, my own at that.

What is your interpretation? If there is anyone out there who can understand this, please share your insights in the comments too, for I (and I think a lot of others) would LOVE to know what the actual words say.

All I know… is that to me, it sounds like a song for the Apocalypse.

With love,
